GIS Day 2023!
Happy GIS Day!
What is GIS? Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a system that captures, creates, and manages digital data. Data is linked geospatially, allowing data to be analysed and visually observed based on its specific location. This helps users of GIS understand patterns, relationships, and geographic content to make better-informed decisions, improve communication, and work more efficiently.
At Wardell Armstrong, we have core teams of GIS users who specialise in the application of GIS technology and processes across a range of service areas including Ecology, Archaeology, Ground Engineering, and Minerals. This includes Clients from a range of sectors including but not limited to infrastructure, renewable energy, environment, property development and engineering.
We can provide services including geoprocessing and analytics, cartography, data management, digital data provision, and much more, utilising a range of desktop, online, and mobile applications provided through GIS software providers such as ESRI and QGIS. Depending on the project and its requirements, we can streamline our workflows accordingly to improve efficiency and accuracy. This may include the collection of digital data on site, which can be accessed by our GIS teams in real-time (where working online), enabling real-time assessment to be undertaken quicker and to start analysis faster.
Our Stoke-on-Trent office is also accredited to ISO 19650-2:2018 for Building Information Management (BIM) deliverables through our BIM team, which can be applied to our GIS deliverables.
